has obtained the footage of Nick Berg’s beheading. We do not have any intention of publishing it this time. There certainly are some peculiar elements to the tape, and the circumstances / timing of its release.

Nick Berg was strangely calm and motionless as the terrorists began to sever his head. It seems reasonable that anyone in the same situation would panic and begin struggling with intense force. No such struggle was observed from the tape.

Additionally, the video clip seems to have a skip or jump right before they begin their attack. Editing? Could they have already killed Nick Berg, then restarted the taping to film the beheading?

I pray that he was already dead, and that he died quickly. I can not image the pain, fright, sadness, anger; all of the emotion mixed with physical sensation one would feel.

Our prayers are with the his family and friends.
